Rock Writer Tim English Shares Never-Before-Heard Stories of John Lennon

John Lennon would have turned 80 in October. Rock writer Tim English documented Lennon’s last year (1980) based on the music he was listening to as he wrote his LP, Double Fantasy.

In John Lennon-1980 Playlist, Tim shared with me never-before heard stories about the competitive nature of Beatles’ songwriting, his last radio interview hours before being killed and the mega band he didn’t think was good enough to sign with his label, Apple Records.

Boy, was he wrong!
